Overview

Education Studies specialises in looking at educational themes, ideas and practices in the widest possible sense through educational theories and philosophies. Students explore a range of contexts from the classroom and the learner’s experience through to education as a lever for social and political change. Theoretical perspectives are drawn from themes which include gender; citizenship; representation; truth; power; childhood and inclusion. It is both a rigorous academic degree and an excellent preparation for those wishing to take a PGCE, particularly for those wanting to teach History.

Modern, philosophical, cultural, social, psychological and historical perspectives are all used as analytical tools to help examine educational debates and a wide variety of educational themes and concepts. Students interrogate the educational process as a whole and seek answers to questions about the purpose, value, misuse and difficulties of education and learning.

History covers a range of cultures, centuries, wars and traditions, sampling the past from the classical to the modern period. Year 1 introduces students to a variety of historical periods and cultures and looks at the methods and nature of history as a discipline. Study focuses on research skills and knowledge that forms the basis of more specialised study in Years 2 and 3 – this includes learning how to use original documents to carry out research.
